Organic produce has seen significant sales growth since the pandemic started:

“The top three categories with the largest sales increases were packaged salads (15.4%), berries (strawberries, blueberries and raspberries) at 12.2% and apples (11.1%), according to the 2020 Organic Produce Performance Report. However, the largest year-over-year sales increases were in herbs and spices (26%) and potatoes (21%). Organic grapes were the only produce item out of the top 10 categories where sales declined with a 6% decrease.”

 

P.S. As more people seek to incorporate fresh fruits and vegetables in their diets, produce quality becomes more important. Walmart is taking steps to address consumer needs and provide the best produce at the best price. Are you interested in selling more through Walmart this year?
